Aye, our processes are currently arcane enough that posting a patch to the
tracker is *less* work than doing the commit yourself (on the other hand,
it depends on another human to get it committed).

On the other hand, if Brian has read PEP 462 and *still* wants to commit
patches directly, then I wouldn't be opposed (given Alex's recommendation).
Call it +0.
